Guinness Braised Short Ribs

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds bone in short ribs (about 8)
  • Kosher salt & fresh ground pepper
  • Neutral oil, like avocado
  • 4 carrots, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 4 celery stalks, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 small yellow onion, cut into a medium dice
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 bottle (12 ounces) Guinness stout
  • 6 fresh thyme stalks

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees
  2. Season short ribs well with salt & pepper
  3. Heat a heavy oven proof pot (like a Dutch oven) and sear short ribs until browned on all sides - (except bone side) until golden brown - about 3-4 minutes total then remove & set aside
  4. Add carrot, celery & onion to the pot and cook until just beginning to soften, about 3 minutes, then add garlic and stir in to combine - cook another 2 minutes
  5. Add tomato paste and flour to vegetables - stir well to combine and cook another minute or so
  6. Put in beef broth & Guinness, stirring well and bring to a boil - turn off heat and add ribs back to the pot long with the thyme
  7. Cover with lid, put in the oven and cook until fork tender - 2 1/2 to 3 hours
  8. Serve with the vegetables and some of the gravy/broth on anything, though cauliflower mash would be ideal.
